Rough Weather Fishing
Even in Florida the weather is not always picture-perfect. On this trip we are expecting rough seas and rain. No problem for the Florida Fisherman ll. That BIG CAT does its thing so we can do ours.

We are not the only ones enjoying Florida in the Sun:



Friday, April 9, 2021, Florida Middle Grounds here we come.

Will goes for the gold:



The Great Line Toss is a direct hit. Talk about a good omen.

A sight to be remembered:



Wow! Catching fish off fish famous John's Pass Jetty:



On the Florida Fisherman there is never a dull moment.

Trolling on the way out:



First anchor drop:



Gag Grouper season opens June 1. All indications point towards another fantastic season:



Mangrove snapper are fun to catch and are welcomed 'guest' on the dinner table:



To talk about good eating is to talk about Red Grouper:



On the Grounds the Red Grouper run BIG:



One of the best eating fish ever to swim, the Scamp Grouper:



First mate Will says the catch was good, but we had to fight for it.

After a hot shower and a fantastic meal it's time for a restful night's sleep on our four inch thick foam rubber bunk.

Sunday morning already? It can't be!



Remember when Will said, 'the catch was good?'

Well!



We will remember this adventure for a very long time:



Check out the tropical colors in our Florida fish:



Think the fun is over? Think again!

Fresh, very fresh caught Florida fish is a culinary delight:



Talk about a delight; how about coming home in the money?



the catch was good, but we had to fight for it.

The 'catch' will get even better as Amberjack, Gag Grouper, and American Red Snapper seasons open.



Catch the video and see what we can expect both today and in the near future:
